Camunda workflow development using API in node js

How rich is node js for dynamic development of workflows? My requirement is to develop workflows using APIs instead of modeler. Can I do it using node js. Is using java has any advantage over node js ?


The model API used to create process models from code is written in Java - there isn’t a node js equivalent as far as i’m aware.

@Ashutosh_Kumar you can use vertx and graal VM with its node support to write node apps that access the java model API.

You can even use Node build tooling.

Perhaps this should be a new thread…
Does Camunda depend on Nashorn? If yes, might GraalVM be a decent replacement?

It seems Oracle intends to deprecate Nashorn:

@Stephen_Newport nashron is used as a “ScriptEngine” inside of the Java execution. also see:
